    I am playing with the idea to expand my UK Ebay business to Eastern European markets because my proift margins on Ebay UK are just not good enough. I think Eastern Europe has great potential for the items I am selling. I recently came over Allegro.pl which looks very interesting to enter the Polish market.

    My questions is anyone trading on Allegro what volumes compared to Ebay UK are possible how are payments handled and are there any other interesting auction platforms in Eastern Europe?

    Thanks for your advice!

    I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle, because you'll have crazy postage issues, i.e. people faking non-delivered items, costly delivery costs, items genuinely getting lost because of corrupt workers in the post, etc.

    If your business allows, then expanding to the US would be a better idea ;)

    I dont think you can find much people trading on allegro here. Their payments are not so good as ebay.
